Project Description

Premier Green Energy (PGE) has developed an innovative continuous pyrolysis system to recover energy from a wide variety of solid wastes designed to be deployed at moderate scale (1-3 MWe) suitable for deployment in distributed community based sustainable energy centres. The steady state production of an energy rich syngas has been proven at pilot scale, however the challenge of conditioning the syngas to remove impurities remains. This project, led by PGE and supported by the Irish Research Centre for Resource Efficiency and the University of Limerick, aims to design and fabricate a syngas conditioning system, modelling and testing the process to validate performance in a gas turbine CHP unit.
